The Sonics - London, March 21, 2008




The Sonics
Kentish Town Forum, London - March 21, 2008

Raw audience recording. No remastering, no eq, only fades added. 19 tracks. End of track 17 is missing due to mini-disc change.

Lineage:
Sony ECM-MS907 > Sony MZ-N707 > WAV > Cool Edit Pro (amplify, fade in, fade out) > CD Wave Editor (split tracks) > Trader's Little Helper (level 8, align on sector boundaries) > FLAC


Here's my 2 cents on the show:
Considering the look of public in the pub near the venue, you can be sure there'll be a real rock'n'roll show in the area. The Headcoats's drummer, The Four Slicks singer ... lotsa Betty Pages too. I left after two beers to be sure to have good seats at the balcony (not real r'n'r to chose the balcony, but I came with my wife and kids, and I'm getting old, ahahah).
The Venue - The Forum (used to be called the Town & Country Club) is a beautiful theatre, reminded me the Palace in Paris. Since the few 1st training notes of "He's Waiting", you good be sure they were the REAL Sonics, not a cover band playing Sonics songs. And since the beginning, it was a winner / winner - pleasure for pleasure show, I mean the public's reaction was so enthusastic - singing the songs, screaming in between songs - and the Sonics probably astonished by such a good feeling that they gave their best and said kind words.
Gerry Roslie sang about 2/3 of the songs, being helped by the other members backing vocals. Bob Lind, the sax / harmonica player and Don Wilhelm, Mr bassman even sang about 1/3 of the songs (Money, Walking The Dog, Monkey Man). The drummer, Ricky Lynn was very much operating too.
But the masters of ceremony were, of course, Larry Parypa and Gerry Roslie, whose vocals and screams were as great as ever. Before singing each song, he drank water in a plastic glass, then throw it to the fans, as a gift.
Once you tried the Sonics, you can't get enough.

Enjoy!

Patrick
